'Tears' Art Journal Page

Hey everybody!
Sorry that the picture I've got for all of you today isn't the greatest. 
Today, I sadly didn't have any time to work on anything creative.
It was my first day back to school after Thanksgiving break, which lasted for a week.
The teachers assigned tons of homework.
And I still had to get my words for NaNoWriMo.
 But I'm still posting.
Hopefully after November is over, my art count will go up.
Except I will still be working with my book.
Finishing the thing.
And editing and crap.

But anyways.
Back to the point that I was going for.
I'm sharing a page with you today that you may or may not have already seen.
I posted it a little while back, but I added to it.
You also may have see it on the journal flip video I posted a few days ago.
I added the white dots to the title.
Also, the two pieces of ephemera are new. 
Other than that, it's the same that it's always been.
I know that it's not that cool today, but I thank you for checking in with me here!
You guys really don't understand how much your views, and more specifically your comments and suggestions mean to me. 
If you ever have any suggestions for the blog; any suggestions at all.
Make sure to leave me a comment.
I'm always checking all of the posts (there's a setting that allows me to do that).
And it makes me happy when I see a new one.
But anyways.
That's what I've got for you guys today, and I'll see you tomorrow!

"Experience Bliss" Art Journal Page

Hey all, I'm back with you guys today with another art journal page!
I've been working on this one for a while. 
If you watched my journal flip a couple days ago, you probably saw it. 
I've added a title, a little heart, and a bunch of journaling since then.
I went into a bunch of different thoughts in the journaling on this page.
I know that when I first started art journaling, 
I didn't journal on the pages that much.
I did a lot of art backgrounds, just playing around with color.
And all that good stuff. 
But as I got more and more "into" art journaling, I thought it would be cool to start the actually journaling process.

I love the way that it looks, and even though the title and the entire color of the page is not really my style, I decided that I like it anyways.
I sort of went into a lot of that in my actual journaling.
Which I thought was pretty cool.
Of course, I'm also biased.

So that's really all I've got for you guys today, but I'll keep you posted.
BTW, if you look opposite of the page I just finished, you'll see an interesting looking page (hopefully!!) that I've been working on.
You'll probably see something of that sometime soon.
See you later!!

Layering Experiment

Hey everybody!
Jordan is back with you guys today.
I'm sharing with you a page that I was working on today.
It was sort of a sample/experiment thing that I was doing for my art journaling e-course that I'm working on.
I've already done a couple videos for that course BTW. :)
It's getting so exciting!

I was playing around with different layers and stuff.
I used some markers, gesso, water, and oil pastels.
Not that much into it thus far, but I really liked the way it was turning out.
I randomly picked the beginning colors with my eyes closed.
And they turned out being my favorite colors!
Blue and green.
With blue being my absolute favorite.

Pretty cool huh?
So I hope that you guys liked the video that I posted yesterday, and I'll hopefully be back tomorrow with some more cool stuff to show you.

Journal Flip I

Hey everybody!
Jordan is back with you guys tonight! 
Okay. So here's what I've got here.
A video journal flip.
Of my favorite, biggest, fluffiest journal.
So yes.
This is my favorite journal.

And I just did a bunch of pages and a flip of the entire thing. 
I'm sure you guys will enjoy it.
And even though that's what I've got for you today, I'll talk to you later.

I'm Baaaackkk!!

Hey everybody!! 
I'm back!!
At least for now. 
I'm sure that you guys are probably wondering where I've been.
Well you see;
I've been working on NaNoWriMo.
That's right all, I'm writing a book.
I find myself very busy with the book and homework.
So it's hard to find time to post on here.

But I hope to do that more often now. 
I have quite a few things to show you.
Including some new storage that I found for my hand painted papers!
A while ago on twitter I was looking for ways to store it.
And I finally came up with something.
I love it so much.
And it works really well.
Especially in comparison to just laying in stacks everywhere.

I know that NaNoWriMo isn't a very good excuse for being gone this long.
And I'm kind of sorry that I haven't been on here so much.
I miss it. 
But those days are gone.
All I can actually make up for is the future. :)
So get ready guys.
I'm going to take you guys for a ride you weren't expecting.
For the next month I'm going to TRY and post every day.
There will be all kinds of interesting content.

Art journal pages.
Manga drawings that I've been doing.
Writing tutorials.
Art journal techniques.
Lists of books that I've been reading and think are good for you to read.
Notes on the book that I'm writing this November.
Updates on my word count.
Pictures that I've taken.
Random things that I just feel like sharing.

It's going to be fun!
But are you ready?
Prepare yourself... because the epic - ness starts now!
